PS3 Blu-ray Drive Connected and Recognized as Reader in a PC!

Sponsored Links
229w ago - This weekend Spanish PS3 developers at DemonHades (linked above) have shared some details and pics of a PS3 Blu-ray drive successfully connected and recognized as a reader in a PC.

With the exception of the Lite-On DH-401S that can read PS3 game discs on a PC, this is the first time an actual PlayStation 3 PS-SYSTEM 302R drive has been reported as functioning on a standard PC.

Many may recall last year the DemonHades Team first Mapped the JTag Port on PS3 Blu-ray Drive, and prior to that GodzIvan shared schematics for the PS3 Blu-ray drive pin-outs.

To quote from DemonHades.org, roughly translated:

"Our colleague has managed HadesTeam Calimba of connecting the PS3 BD player to the PC, as you all know the communication interface that uses the reader is bd flex belt so you do not have any type of connector for this work, so we have communicated BD reader to the pc to start to investigate more thoroughly.

Jungleflasher as both dosflash recognize it. Another good news in PlayStation 3 research community for DHorg and his followers from other Web sites. More information is available [Register or Login to view links]."

All PS3's can read:

  • Dual Layer Dvds
  • Single Layer Dvds
  • CD-R
  • CD-Rw
  • All other forms of cd/dvd/bluray media

Not all ps3's can play ps2 games.

Unless there are models of PS3 that can't read them it indicates that the features indicated are not correct.

I noticed that also. But it CAN read dual layer, almost all commercial dvds are DL. I don't watch dvds very often in mine, but I just checked Mallrats dvd on my pc, it is 7.78 gb. Played in 60gb PS3.

Okay, nice. But if they know something to "flash" the drive, there is only a few problems.

We need to have an blu-ray recorder to record the thing on the disk. Which is the second problem because the disks are very expensive. And then you have the poor internet connection, if you wan't a game and its online. if you gonna download it, it will take ages to get it. And you need an large harddisk because the games are 20 gig or more.
